The world only seems to focus on the fact that God is love, because that is the only attribute of God that they seem to accept about God. It is an easy attribute to understand and desire since it is an attribute that makes the world feel good about its self. Yet, that is only one of the many, many attributes of God that are mentioned in His Word, the Holy Bible. Let’s take a look at them. I dare you to read all of them. I double-dog dare you to read all of them with an open and understanding mind. I triple-dog dare you to not only read these openly, but to also accept them as the truth, because God's Word is the Truth!
